Still very tired...

I read from "Quick and Clever Watercolours" by Charles Evans and I also read from "10-Minute Watercolours" and made more notes about colours. I worked through the book and found out how many times she mentioned using each colour and made a tally. Then I created a palette box of her most used colours by squeezing paint from tubes into the empty squares where Cotman half-pans had been.

I tidied up the lines made by masking fluid on "Man and Bike". I painted around the bike with appropriate colours to make it easier to see where I'll need to paint.

I read from a few pages of "Creating Textures in Watercolours" (Project 45) on the subject of painting faces and clothing, also for "Man and Bike".
